Sirok is not a friend of pretentious and decorated rooms or houses. He likes to keep it plain and simple, which can be clearly seen when you enter his quarters. The room is only sparsely decorated. All the items he keeps in his quarters have a special meaning to him. The Vulcan Starfleet officer owns a painting, which he has hanging on the wall of his room. It shows the coastline of the Vulcan province of Shi'Al and reminds him of his home.
Apart from that you can only find a photograph of his sister, which normally stands at his desk. It is the only family photograph that can be found in his room. Some candles which he does not only light for his daily meditation complete the decoration. Therfore he usually calibrates the ship's fire alarm system which enables him to use them without triggering the alarm. He normally keeps the light in his quarters below standard, so that it is slightly darker than usual in his room. Apart from that, the environmental settings in his room are also set to a higher temperature than the normal Starfleet temperature.
There are some typical habits that Sirok shows. When you spend some time with him, it is very likely that you would see him in his typical pose, both hands clasped behind his back. Another habit - which is often said to be typical for many if not all Vulcans is the typical eyebrow. Whenever he is sceptical or even surprised by something, his right eyebrow would go up.
Another habit, which is very important for him is his daily meditation. Whenhever it is possible, he tries to do that before he goes to sleep. Meditation helps him to get the inner strength to control the strong Vulcan emotions inside him.

On stardate 232012.12 Sirok was born as the first child to Lodzhal and T’Dess on Vulcan. He was given the name Sirok, meaning "outside hope" in the Vulcan language. He has a younger sister, T'Sey - meaning "lady who asserts", who was was born three years later.
Sirok was raised on the Vulcan homeworld. His family owns a house in the east of the Shi'Al province, surrounded by rolling hills and not too far from the Thanor Sea. His father had a determining influence on his upbringing. Due to the fact that his father was rigorously following the way of Kolinahr, Sirok's education was hallmarked by strictness of logic and severe discipline. After managing the ritual by which all remaining vestigial emotions were demonstrated as purged, his father Lodzhal tried to live by the difficult and strict mental discipline whereby this state was maintained. Lodzhal also tried to teach his children to follow that way as the only logical and acceptable way for Vulcans. When his sister T'Sey eventually actively protested against her father by leaving the house and moving to the capital city of Vulcan, ShiKahr, the family broke every tie with her - apart from Sirok, who remains the only one who still has contact to his sister. Their mother T'Dess was not successful in asserting a less rigid attitude towards education and eventually submitted herself to her husband's way.
Especially after his sister had left their family home, Sirok’s days on Vulcan were characterized by meditation,strict rules and denial of all emotions. But in spite of (or even because of) his father’s strict and hard-line lectures, Sirok tends to have a more relaxed view on emotions than his father. After studying the Kirshara, Surak's writings and teachings, and due to his contact to his sister T'Sey, he finally came to the conclusion that he had to accept the existance of his emotions. It is neither logical for him to deny the fact that those strong emotions exist nor to attempt to strictly follow the way of Kolinahr, which purges all the remaining vestigial emotions.
On the other hand, however, he agrees and the supports the teachings of Surak and believes that Vulcans have to control their emotions as they turned out to be disastrous in Vulcan history. Therfore he would not show them openly and tries to keep them under control. Sirok tries to find a balance between the fact that he has emotions and the way of logic and Surak, so that emotions don’t rule him and his behaviour.
In spite of his father's attempts to make him follow the way of Kolinahr and the fact that Lodzhal also broke with Sirok after he had left Vulcan, he can understand his father. He also accepts that his father chose the way he follows, but arrogates the right of choosing his own way.
As a final act of emancipation from his father, Sirok also left his family home and went to Earth, where he joined Starfleet Academy and came into contact with many other species for whom emotions play a vital role in their life.
Naturally, he had some problems finding new non-Vulcan friends there as he found their way of living out their emotions disturbing at first. Therfore he concentrated on his studies and the lectures which helped him with his academic performance. In the last two Academy years, after completion of the Academy's General Studies program, he spent much time concentrating on his minors and majors, which he laid in the fields of security but also science as he was personally fascinated and interested in the fields of astronomy and microbiology. It was in the last years that he had slowly managed to find some friends at the Academy, who were not Vulcan, but he is still very reluctant in making new friends.
After the completion of the Academy, he served as a security officer for the staff personnel of Admiral Samuelson. After the return of the missing Discovery, he was assigned to the USS Discovery-C as Security officer by Admiral Samuelson.
